About Me

I am a wanderer
I dream big and live small (aka out of my van!)
I climb, run, and am eager to learn other modes of human-powered adventure.
I am an aspiring artist, activist and explorer, an active educator and a life-long learner.
I’m fueled by breakfast burritos, coffee and peanut butter.
I enjoy meeting new people, learning about new cultures and getting to know new places.
I enjoy riddles, singing and dancing.
What makes me happy? Community, adventure and the opportunity to try something new.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on couchsurfing because I love getting to meet new people. Especially if i'm traveling solo, getting to couch surf or stay at hostels is a great way to meet other travelers and people from the host country!
I'm also on couchsurfing because I am on a budget and in some countries I can't even afford the hostels!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This year I am embarking on a personal journey…… a journey that will challenge me and push me beyond my personal limits. A journey that will get me outside of my comfort zone on a daily basis and will help me grow as a woman, climber, activist and artist.
I am currently living out of my van, traveling, exploring and climbing outside. I have been humbled by the vast beauty of the natural world, of the rock I’ve climbed and of the people I have met along the way. Being surrounded by so much generosity, curiosity and care from others has made me fully understand how amazing the global community is and how lucky I am to be apart of it.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach people English, how to cook traditional American food, American music, how to juggle etc.
I love learning new languages, how to cook food from the host country and whatever else people want to teach me.
I enjoy sharing stories and experiences.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am a very clean and respectful traveler and share my stories, photos, writing and experiences with others!
